WAS JESUS THE WORST PROPHET EVER?

“Abundance”

Is This Abundance?

Is This Abundance?

We all want it.  But for most of us, Abundance seems elusive enough to make the Scarlet Pimpernel jealous.

Christians believe that the founder of their religion promised it to them.  In fact, Jesus claimed that His purpose in coming to this planet was:  That humans might have Life, and have it more abundantly. – John 10.10

Jesus was clearly the absolute worst prognosticator that Planet Earth has ever seen.  How many Christians were put to death by the Roman Empire within a couple of centuries after Jesus was here?  That doesn’t sound like Someone who came “to give them Life.”

How many Christians do you know that “Live in Abundance”?  I have an incredible Church, and yet some weeks we sound like we have nothing better to do than gripe and moan about our poor lot in life.  That doesn’t sound like Abundance.

Could This Dude Predict the Future Better than Jesus?

Could This Dude Predict the Future Better than Jesus?

We can deduce only one of two things from this:  If Nostradamus and Jesus of Nazareth have conflicting prophecies, go with El Costa Nostra!

Seriously:  Jesus couldn’t have been more off on both sides of the “Abundance Prophecy!”  If J.C. told you the Cowboys were a lock to win their next game in Washington D.C.; you should sell everything you have, borrow as much as you can, fly to Vegas, and bet it all on the Redskins!

Or, perhaps, I will choose “Promises that Great People Have Made That I  Don’t Fully Understand, for $1,000, Alex.”

There would be very little Jeopardy of hearing George Alexander Trebek respond with something materially different than:

“Answer:  Commonly thought of as fortune, fame, status, and material security; what word actually describes a mindset of such confident faith in God and Self; such that one possesses complete peace of mind and lives continuously in joy, truth, and love?”

Luxury?  Or Abundance?

Luxury? Or Abundance?

Abundance, as Jesus employed the word, means living authentically and in harmony with one’s purpose and principles.  Despite what us Christians often preach…it does not mean living perfectly.  Just Authentically and True to Our Beliefs.

Abundance:  Living Authentically and in Harmony with our Principles.
